php - Codeception run test from web interface


I need to run codeception's test from web interface. Have no idea how to do it and cant search it in google. Or it work for console only?




Codeception is designed to be run from the command line, but if you want to initiate tests from within your web browser instead, you might be interested in which is a web-based front end to Codeception.


Webception is a deployable web-application that allows you to run all your Codeception tests in the browser.

You can access multiple test suites and decide which tests to include in a run. It allows you start, stop and restart the process whilst watching the test results in the Console.

I need to run codeception's test from web interface.

I am assuming by web interface you mean, running acceptance tests on web browser like firefox, chrome etc.

If thats the case, then follow the steps from this page

Scroll down to the section: Selenium-WebDriver

  1. First create/generate a basic cept or cest test inside your acceptance directory

    ./vendor/bin/codecept generate:cept acceptance your-test-name
  2. Edit the acceptance.suite.yml:

            - WebDriver
                url: ''
                browser: 'firefox'
  3. If you don't have the selenium server yet, get it from (Grab the Selenium Standalone Server - current version is 2.47.0). We need the selenium server running to communicate with the browser (web interface) using the webdriver. To start the server, run the following command in a terminal window ( * replace it with the version you downloaded )

     java -jar /path/to/selenium-server-standalone-*.jar 
  4. Run the test on a separate terminal

    ./vendor/bin/codecept run acceptance --steps

This should start the test in firefox browser. If you don't have firefox browser, please download it. If you like to use chrome instead, make sure to first get the correct chromedriver for your os, and then pass the path to chromedriver when you start the selenium server

java -jar /path/to/selenium-server-standalone-*.jar
